The Driving Companion
Training and assessment
Each page contains the Task title, the learning outcomes for the Task, the assessment standards and the Task content or requirements that you must achieve to be successful. Each right-hand side of the page contains all the
training and assessment records, which will be completed by your Authorised Examiner as your training progresses or at the end of each training session.
CBT&A Authorised Examiner
A CBT&A Authorised Examiner will conduct training and assessment of all Tasks specified in the CBT&A course.
Where a Task requirement cannot be reasonably accessed within a 40 kilometre road distance from the town limit where the CBT&A course is being conducted or 25 minutes of normal driving (whichever is the shorter), the Authorised Examiner will explain the item but will not be required to assess the learner driver in order to sign off the Task.
The Authorised Examiner will note on the assessment page of the particular task that the task was not assessed.
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC)
If you feel you already have the driving skills and knowledge, probably gained by previous training, but haven’t yet been assessed, your Authorised Examiner can skip the training component and conduct an assessment. All CBT&A assessment requirements must be met as per The Driving Companion. This process is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
If you’ve already had Tasks signed off as competent and switch to a new Authorised Examiner for whatever reason, they will need to ensure you can still perform the Task(s) correctly. This process is called Recognition of Current Competencies (RCC).
If any Task is not demonstrated correctly, training will need to be provided and re-assessment as per the conditions must occur.
